Pinewood Studios and the BFI have announced the launch of a joint program for interns in film production. The program is designed to help develop the next generation of film talent, and to ensure productions financed by Pinewood and the BFI will take on trainees, from the UK and a diverse array of backgrounds, across a number of departments. And one more thing: the interns will be paid!
Pinewood and the BFI have co-invested in four films to date: "Last Passenger," "Belle," "Our Robot Overlords" and "Posh." The BFI has also helped to finance British independent productions such as the Oscar-winning "The King's Speech" and box office success "The Woman in Black."
